Most car accidents fall under the category of an honest mistake. However, some car accidents are such blatant egregious errors that felony charges are filed in connection with the crash. This proved true for a couple from Reno that were recently killed in a car accident on McCarran Boulevard. The driver and passenger who caused the crash are being held in county jail after fleeing the scene of the car accident.
Just the thought of getting in a crash makes most motorcyclists cringe. This is because even the smallest of fender-benders can lead to catastrophic injuries or destruction to property. Liability can fall on the shoulders of a motor-vehicle driver if they failed to exercise due care leading up to the accident. Motor-vehicle drivers sometimes argue that they didn't see the motorcyclist before the accident.
There are many driving behaviors that Reno drivers are practicing today that are inherently unsafe. What are they? Most of the driving behaviors fall under the category of distracted driving. With everyone's busy lives, it is understandable how someone could fall victim to these dangerous behaviors.
For many involved in a car accident, this is their first experience dealing with such an incident. There may be injuries to the driver or loved ones and severe property damage. It may seem, as an injured person, that you don't know where to turn. There are certain things that need attending to immediately and other items that can wait.
As we know, car accidents happen. But, it is the car accidents that are preventable, the ones that seem so avoidable, that are the hardest to witness. A true tragedy occurred in Reno a few weeks ago when two Nevada residents from the next town over sadly lost their lives in a car crash.
